What a band!
What a band!
Ian Gillan or Ray Gillen? I got more Ronnie James Dio or maybe Rob Halford but yes, basically anyone that did vocals for Black Sabbath.Yeah; I was all geared up for "Ya aaa ;agYSFSSE ;RUWEIGIDDSAHSCZCXVCV" and then .... Oh, Ian Gillen(sp?) moved to Oz.
The reason for my like is, that I like metal with a tune you can call melody. They aren't a band I would consider to become one of my favorites, but I wanted to signal the OP that there are indeed people who like that kind of music, too.Ian Gillan or Ray Gillen?

Guitars very Scorpions/MSG/UFO: @fresh_42 is this the reason for your like?
Drummer lets them down, there's more to blast beat than cranking the tempo knob to max on the kick-drum.
I am not sure about the “unreleased BBC tapes part” but when I listened to this first time I was blown away.I do like the Battle Rages on:
Also their latest album I have it, interesting; but I don't like the mellow songs.
For me the Celestial Sphere of Ilium sounds like no other tune I have heard.I am not sure about the “unreleased BBC tapes part” but when I listened to this first time I was blown away.
This is 5 musicians enjoying playing, talent to burn, chemistry – no one could touch them.
From a drummer point of view some of the things he does are fantastic, very difficult especially the bass drum on Mandrake Root and Space Truckin’

The reunion in the 80s had a different sound and I did not like it much (or much 1980s stuff) so I switched off on later Albums
The Celestial Sphere sounds more like Iron Maiden to me
